We've stayed here on two separate trips to Nepal, staying each time both before and after a trek. It's an oasis of calm in chaotic Kathmandu. We had comfortable rooms both times, and only small niggles sometimes with a lamp that didn't work, or awkward wall plugs. But always hot water, which is really nice. Lovely to kick back in... More

The room we had was basic, clean and reasonably comfortable. There is noise pretty much everywhere, no matter the hotel, unless you are in 5 star accommodations with good sound-proofing, so travel with earplugs if it's an issue for you. The female staff were very efficient and friendly. They even printed out our plane tickets for no charge which I... More

This is a nice friendly place, the staff were extremely helpful and nice. The hotel itself is good, rooms were basic but clean and there is always hot water and electricity. It also has a really nice garden out the back and good views of Swyambhunath from the roof terrace. Location is a little tucked away, which is advantageous as... More

We only stayed here for a night but the hotel was well situated. It is good and clean. Didn't have an elevator if that is important to anyone ( we didn't mind). The garden cafe was good as was the breakfast. Overall a good choice and value for money.

First, let me just say that what you think of this hotel is going to largely depend on what room you book. We had booked a deluxe room ahead of time. We were rather unceremoniously dumped into a standard room when we arrived after being told at the last minute that they had already sold our room. The first room... More

We stayed here on four occasions in March, 2015. The hotel is perfectly located between the restaurants and shopping of Thamel, and the sights of Durbar Sq. Rooms are spacious and comfortable with a great courtyard garden and large balconies on all floors of the main building. The staff were all delightful, helpful and so polite! The food and service...

We stayed in Ganesh Himal for three nights at the start of our trip and had a great time so ended up booking for our last two nights in Nepal too. Service is great, all staff are really friendly and happy to help. Rooms are also to a great standard, very clean and beds are comfy and the restaurant is... More

This is a little charming hotel located 10 minutes away from the busy Thamel square. The courtyard is an excellent place to rest while having food or reading books. We had to change rooms 3 times during our stay due to various reasons, but hotel staff accommodated our needs well. Hotel food were inexpensive and good enough for us. By... More

Super friendly staff, very helpful with recommending and arranging tours that were flexible at good value. Right in between and close to both Thamel district and Durbar Square. Hot showers with great water pressure. Full power most of the time, much better in this regard than other equivalent-priced accommodation. Nice menu with good quality food - try the room service.
